Washington Officials Trying To Reach
Working Settlement
For Owners


(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, NoV. 18.-A hope
that the action of the Mexican Su-
preme court in the Mexican Petroleum
company's drilling permit case has
opened the way for adjustment of the
entire oil controversy with Mexico

was expressed today in a formal state-
ment made public today by the State
Officials were not inclined to go
beyond this statement in discussing the
significance of yesterday's Mexican
court decision. The complexity of
Mexican law, which differs widely
from American practice, makes it dif-
ficult to determine the full purport
of the decision without detailed study
of the written documents which ulti-
mately stand as the legal record for
the guidance of Mexican courts and
executive officials.
Ambassador Morrow at Mexico City
confined himself to a message which
merely said the decision was reported
to have held Articles 14 and 15 of
the Mexican petroleum law uncon-
stitutional in the specific case in
which the decision was rendered. It
would require four similar decisions
on the same point in as many separate
cases to wipe those articles of the
petroleum at off the statute books of
In view of the prolonged delay
which is expected before Mexican le-
gal machinery completes its action on
the drilling permit cases, the hope
expressed by the State department
that this first decision might open the
way to adjustment of the controversy
is taken in some quarters as Implying
the possibility of another attempt at
diplomatic negotiations to expedite a
return to fulloperation of American-
owned oil properties in Mexico.
Understanding Possible
It -appeared possible that Washing-
ton officials were at least meditating
over the chances there might now
be a working understanding with
Mexico which would protect Ameri-
can oil properties from retroactive
applicati~on of unconstitutional pro-
visions regarded by the Washington
government as confiscatory.
Even if this is the case, it is not
to be expected that any definite move
toward a modus vivendi would be
made prior to the reducing of the
supreme court decision to writing
where its exact significance could be
determined by each government.
Aside from any other conlera-
tions, however, there is no doubt that
the decision as reported has created
aprofound impression in Washington
and inspired hope for future relations
between the two countries that have
not existed here for many months.
WASHINTON, Nov. 18-Denials of
assertions in certain docunents
printed in Hearst newspapers re-
cently to the effect that the Soviet
embassy in Mexico City received
funds from the Mexican government
for conducting "propaganda" in Mex-
ico, were issued today by Boris E.
Skvirsky through the Soviet union in-
formation bureau.
Skvirsky described the attempt to
involve the Soviet union through the
publication of the alleged documents
as "both crude and disingenious," and
that the accompanying news stories
"are wholly ridiculous."
Skvirsky said the persons reported
in the purported documents to have
received the funds were unknown to
Two hundred and forty high schools
throughout the state, members of the
Michigan High School Debating
league, held first debates in the pre-
liminary series yesterday afternoon
and night. According to Prof. Gail
E. Densmore of the extension division
of the University, this is the largest
number of high 'schools that have ever
taken part in the preliminary rounds

"Countries are like the all-Ameri-
can team," declared Harry A. Franck,
'03, traveler, author and lecturer who
last night spoke on the Oratorical se-
ries in Hill auditorium; "in trying to
pick the one you like best you have
to take part of one country and part
of another; you cannot pick a whole
country and call it the best.
Mr. Franck, who is known as the
"Prince of Vagabonds," when asked
how he acquired that title, said that
it was first given him some years
ago by an enterprising South Ameri-
can editor who ran a series of articles
under that heading. The traveler,
who speaks eight or nine different
languages, is at the present time con-
cerned with writing his thirteenth
book of world travel. He also has a
contract for five other books of travel
to be published later. Thus, he in-j
tends to travel in the future although'
he has already visited so many coun-
tries that he is not certain which he
will select next, although he believes
three of them will be the Balkans,
Great Britain and the United States,
which would be, he pointed out, "See-
ing America Last."
Visiting Organization Will Be Met By
Michigan rDelegation Ipoji
Arri al't'oday
Minnesota university's 128-piece
band will arrive here this morning at
8:45 to take part in the ceremonies
for the game here this afternoon.
Soon after the game, they will pro-
ceed to Detroit where they will play
this evening before a large meeting
and banquet of the University of Min-
nesota club of Detroit.
The visiting band will be met at
the station by a delegation from the
Michigan organization and will march
up State street to Morris hall which
will be their headquarters during the
day. Although no definite plans may
be made until the visitors arrive, it is
expected that the band will lead the
Minnesota delegation in some sort of
parade around the campus, this morn-
The Michigan and Minnesota bands
will join forces and begin their march
from the Union to the new stadium
for the game about 2 o'clock. They
will march down State street to the
south road, going past old Ferry field,
then to the east entrance of the sta-
dium. The Minnesota band wil enter
upon the field first and will march
to the flagpole. The Michigan band
will next enter and march to the pole,
forming the new M-I-C-H on their
{ way. The two will combine and play
the "Star Spangled Banner" as the
flag is being raised. They will then
remarch and take their seats.
Between the halves, the two organi-
zations will take the field and combine
to form a huge block "M" in front of
the Minnesota stands. They will then
play the two most famous songs of
the visiting school. It is expected
that this large formation of both bdnds
will extend from 30-yard line to 30-
yard line. A~ter playing the two
Minnesota songs, the point of the "M"
will be reversed so that the "M" will
face toward the Michigan stands
|while the bands play "'Varsity" and
"The Yellow and Blue."
Immediately after the game, the
band representing the victorious
school will leave the field first and
!will lead the march back along the
route taken to the stadium to the
Union where they will disband. The
Minnesota band will leave almost im-
mediately on a special train so as to
be in Detroit in time for the alumni
The Minnesota band is directed by

'Mike Jalma and is managed by Clar-
ence C. Hostrup, '27, who is a former
member of Minnesota 'Varsity band
and who is now a member of the Uni-
versity of Minnesota faculty.
Members of the publicity commit
tee of the 1927 Union Opera "The
1 Same To You" have placed on dis-
play pictures of the various members
of the cast which were taken some
time ago by Paul Stone of the Ray-
nior Studios, Chicago. Most of th

Although his books have always
been about his travels and therefore
non-fiction, Mr. Franck has just re-
cently completed his first piece of fic-
tion, a short story of adventure. The
fifth chapter of his new book, whichl
will concern his Mediterrean travels,I
was mailed last night from Ann Ar-
bor just before he gave his lecture
Asked by Prof. Richard D. Hollister,
of the speech department, what he,
as a world wide traveler, thought of
the various races of the world, as a
whole, Mr. Franck replied that it was
fundamentally sound and good; that
the masses in particular can usually
be trusted and that he, has observed,
that the country that has been the
greatest success is often times inclin-
ed to have the fewest virtues.

The second edition of the "Gaily
